NTMA Elects New Board Chairman

Rosenberger-Toth VP and Managing Director Toth takes the reigns of association representing 1,400 companies in the U.S. precision custom manufacturing industry.

The National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) announced that Ted Toth, V.P. and managing director of Rosenberger-Toth in Pennsauken, N.J., was elected 2014 chairman of the NTMA board of directors during the association’s annual meeting last week in Phoenix, Ariz. NTMA also announced the election of Herb Homeyer, president of Homeyer Precision Manufacturing in St. Louis, as vice chairman; Dave Sattler, president of Sattler Companies in Akron, Ohio, as treasurer; and Ken Seilkop, president of A - G Tool & Die in Cincinnati, Ohio, as secretary. Bob Mosey, owner of Moseys Production Machinists Inc. in Pasadena, Calif., is past chairman.

Mr. Toth announced that the theme of his one-year term as NTMA chairman is “Retooling Precision Manufacturing.”

“Our industry faces many challenges, and it is critical that we tackle them head-on,” Mr. Toth says. “There is nothing more important than the continued development of skilled workers. Right now, we have a real call to action to dispel negative, outdated stereotypes about our industry and to think creatively to attract young people to high-tech and high-paying careers in our growing sector. The future of American manufacturing depends on what we do today.”

Toth is also the director of The Toth Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the U.S. precision manufacturing industry with innovative training tools.
